Chad Mendes has stepped into the Octagon the last four times and emerged the victor via knockout. The featherweight will look to reach a featherweight record with number five at UFC on FOX 9.
“I’m going to fight in front of my hometown, Sacramento, and put on a great show,” said Mendes. “Hopefully get in there and get another knockout and be the first one in UFC history to get five in a row. That’s the goal. Hopefully it happens, and I’m hoping and I’m praying that’s what’s next for me after that.”
Opposite Mendes is Nik Lentz. He’s won all three of his fights since going to featherweight, with two taking place this year.
Mendes took three straight opening round stoppage wins then Knockout of the Night over Clay Guida. The recent Guida win took three rounds.
The featherweights are on the main card of UFC on FOX 9 on December 14. It’s from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, CA.
